Where in So. Fla. are there corporate fashion jobs?

Asked by mrrich724 (8537points) April 2nd, 2010

We currently live in Southern California, and she works for a high-end fashion company in their corporate office.

Do you know any companies with corporate offices in the Miami/Ft. Lauderdale area? She is not interested in retail… and we are moving to South Florida soon.

Many Thanks.

The Gap has some offices near Boca (or they did a few years ago, things might have changed with the downturn in the economy, I don’t see the location on their website) Vera Wang has something in the Palm Beach area, and On Gossamer’s main offices are in Miami. I have to think some more. Probably if you go to the library you can get a book of HQ’s by industry.

Also, maybe she could cross into frangrances? Parlux is in Ft Laud http://www.parlux.com/#contacts

Thanks. I like the idea of the HQ Book at the library. Is that a guess, or does that really exist? LOL.

Where in the library would that be?

@mrrich724 I once used one here in Memphis, it was in the reference section. I just asked the person at the desk and they helped me. They had one specific to Memphis. I assume you are not in FL yet, but maybe your library has some sort of national book of HQ’s. I think there has to be one. Also, anything that is a franchise would probably have an HQ of sorts for that particular franchisee who owns the local territory.

What type of position does she have?

She has been a Trim Assistant, an Executive Assistant, and currently in the Accounting department as an A/P clerk. All for the same company over the past three years. (AA in Fashion Design)

Look in the Thomas Register. I’ve known of them for years for “industrial” links, but… fashion is an industry, too. A librarian could give you tips, too.
